Recommended Homework

Finite Math

A Practical Odyssey, 3rd ed.

Homework for each week is due the following Monday. Homework must conform to the following:

1. Your name and class (e.g. section F) in the upper right hand corner of each   page.
2. Stapled (not  folded or paper-clipped) in the upper left hand corner.
3. Problems and sections in order, with answers checked.
4. Problems neatly done, no scratch-outs, with all work shown!   No credit for answers only.

Homework will be accepted early, but never late.

Read each section before  it is covered in class and note vocabulary and formulas.

You are responsible for having done the homework problems after each section had been discussed in class and before the next class period. It is very important that each exercise is done correctly !  Incorrect exercises don't help anyone very much. You can look in the back of the book, in the solution manual (on reserve at the library), you can compare answers with others in your study group or class, you can ask at the help session, you can come to my office hours---you should ultimately be able to solve every problem perfectly. Be careful to do each type of problem until you can do it without help or looking anything up in the book since you will not be able to use the book on the quizzes.

Appendix I: all exercises. Do these immediately!  They are due the next class period. Please see me ASAP if you have any difficulties with your calculator!!

Here are the excercises for the rest of the semester.  Generally, the exercises for each section will be due the Monday after the section is covered in class.   See sections due for exactly what is due when.
